Asian Pacific American New Yorkers Count
For the first time in twelve years, New Yorkers will have a new mayor in January 2014. Asian and Pacific New Yorker are the fastest growing population in our City, a community that provides myriad assets to the vitality of this City.
As you may have heard, Talking Transition is an open conversation about the future of New York City. A tent has been set up on Canal Street and Sixth Avenue for New Yorkers to send to our new Mayor and his transition a message of how he can improve our city.
Please join the Asian American Federation, Asian Americans for Equality and the Coalition for Asian American Children and Families for a “Asian Pacific American New Yorkers Count” session on Friday, November 22, from 12:30pm-1:30pm! This is OUR opportunity to come together and share concerns and priorities of our community, as well as give recommendations to Mayor-Elect de Blasio, his administration and key decision makers.
In addition to our Talking Transition session, we are asking APA-serving groups to collect messages and letters from your community members, in language, on what services are top priorities or their vision for New York City. We encourage creativity! Please bring clients to record a direct message to the Mayor-Elect.
Friday, November 22, 12:30pm-1:30pm
